Pozo Blue sage

Salvia ‘Pozo Blue’


The Pozo Blue, or Gray Musk sage, sage grows into a medium size mounding shrub 3-4 ft. tall and 4-7 ft. wide. Foliage is comprised of pale-green leaves, 1-2 in. long and heavily wrinkled on the surface. Large numbers of colorful violet-blue flowers occur in distinct whorls mid to late spring for a showy floral display. The fragrance of both leaves and flowers are highly pleasingly and sweet in character.

Pozo Blue sage is a highly pleasing native shrub introduced by Las Pilitas Nursery in Santa Margarita. It is among the most popular sages selections to attract butterflies, hummingbirds and add sweet fragrance to mixed native landscape plantings. It grows well throughout the Inland Empire and can be sustained with little summer water once established. It adapts to both clayey as well as sandy soils, and in sunny locations with natural leaf litter.
